California Trails Center Staff Visit Wyoming National Historic Trails Center

By Lesley Collins, Public Affairs Specialist, High Plains District 

Staff from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) California National Historic Trail Interpretive Center in Elko, Nevada, visited the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) on March 4, 2010.

In preparation for their grand opening this summer, employees from the California Trails Center spent the day touring the facility and learning how the NTHIC has operated for eight years.

“We are here to learn and share,” said Trails Center Manager Dave Jamiel.

There was also time set aside for one-on-one discussions with staff from the NHTIC, BLM Casper Field Office, High Plains District Office and National Historic Trails Interpretive Center Foundation.

They also visited with several of the NHTIC volunteers. “The volunteers are really what makes this place work. We can’t meet our mission of providing good information to the public without the assistance of these dedicated individuals.” said NHTIC Director Mike Abel.

The California National Historic Trail Interpretive Center, operated by the BLM, is located eight miles west of Elko at Hunter Exit 292. The Trail Center is scheduled to open on a regular basis the summer of 2010.
